longevity Apr 04, 2019

Since yesterday was my birthday, I thought it would be a good time to talk about longevity.

This is a topic I’ve been looking into a lot lately because my retreat in Costa Rica will take place in a “blue zone” - one of just a handful of places around the world where groups of people are living past 100.

With V'Day a few days away I thought I'd give you some ideas about how you can get extra cozy with your loved ones with a little help from the Danes.

And as I’ve come to understand the power and underutilized intelligence of the heart, I’ve started to learn how to do a better job at listening to my heart instead of my mind.
